Apply for the Fully Funded Scholarships at the University of Strathclyde. The deadline for the application is 30th September 2020. The scholarship is for Ph.D. degree.
In this project the fellows will develop an innovative technique using an optical tweezer to generate a localized shear flow in a crystallizing solution, thus triggering nucleation in a known, directly observable position. Likewise, then they will then use light scattering to measure the structure and shape of the growing nucleus, interpreted through refining computational models of the nucleus against the measured data.
This challenging project will bring the Ph.D. candidate excellent research experience across crystallization processes, cutting-edge optical control and measurement, and data analysis using computational modeling.
Candidates should be strongly motivated to undertake multidisciplinary research in a highly collaborative environment. You should have or be about to obtain a good degree (at least 2.1) in chemical engineering, physics, or a related subject, with excellent laboratory, data analysis, and communication skills. Experience in optics, crystallization processes, and/or computational data analysis would be an advantage.
The project is fully funded for Home UK/EU fees + stipend). The proposed start date for this project is October 2020.
During the application applicants must provide the following information and evidence uploaded to the application:
- your full contact details
- Also, transcripts and certificates of all degrees
- Likewise, proof of English language proficiency if you are not from a majority English-speaking country as recognized by UKVI
- Also, two references, one of which must be academic. See The guidance on referees
- funding or scholarship information
- Additionally, international students must declare any previous UK study
The University of Strathclyde is a public research university located in Glasgow, Scotland. Founded in 1796 as the Andersonian Institute, it is Glasgow’s second-oldest university, having received its royal charter in 1964 as the first technological university in the United Kingdom.
